This is a compilation of finest Musictrade ambient from seven different artists, two of whom - Likantropika and TheOmen - make their debute on the label on this album.
Frags's stylish Payday builds on a garage field recording from Australia (by Electroteque), creating a dark and mesmerizing atmosphere. Likantropika is a dedicated ambient artist from Andorra and his Musictrade debute Wish is a smooth piece of emotionally touching keyboard ambient. Doc & Lena Selyanina's Caspar's Walk builds on a field recording capturing an outdoor walk and Lena's beautiful serene piano improvisations. Fünf Euro by Unknown Forces utilizes a field recording from Germany with an attractive repetitive synth background. KraftiM's Pa2m is a darkly mysterious track echoing chants from a Himalayan monastery, with a touch of extra strangeness from sampled children's laughter. TheOmen comes from Holland and his Cellophonica was born out of his love for the cello, expressed in the medium of his new love, ambient. Softspace's Letting Go At 881 is a graceful journey into inner landscapes, a gateway to an altered state of consciousness in the separate reality of sound.
Note: a 24bit/44.1kHz audiophile version of the album is available from Mininova
